Despite an injury during finals week, Bree felt she performed more intensely than she ever had her in entire life. When she found out her courage and determination paid off and she had made the SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE CANADA Top 22, all she could feel was “relief and excitement.”

Bree credits her formal dance training to four Alberta dance studios where she learned various styles including her main style, contemporary, as well as jazz, tap, ballet, hip-hop and lyrical.

Bree has already worked with a number of notable choreographers Luther Brown and Skye Sweetnam in the “Human” music video and quite a number of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE CANADA alumni including Miles Faber, Vincent Noiseux, and Natalli Reznik. No stranger to knowing what it takes to be a successful dancer, Bree looks forward to expanding her experiences on the show.

Bree says her life would be complete if she got to work with SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE CANADA guest judge and choreographer Mia Michaels who she believes is “the be all, and end all of dance – of inspiration – of creativity – of genius – of life!”

Aside from dance, this Toronto native loves photography and eating a combination of avocadoes and goat cheese. Bree says she wants Canada to know that she is “just a big goofball! I love to laugh, and enjoy life. I don’t take life too seriously, and just try to enjoy every moment as it comes.”

Bree says viewers can expect to see someone who commits 100% to her craft and performances. “I was born to be on stage, and you better believe that I will enjoy every second, and take full advantage of this opportunity!”
